everyone else. >> it kind of went cooled plan and this is what we planned for. in some respects, people have kind of commented to me, oh, my god, you were a part of history and how many couples did we mary? how many families did we start? how many dreams did we make come true? the whole part of being part of history is something that we are here and we are charged with this responsibility to carry out. >> good evening, everybody. this is the entertainment

it went to the board of supervisors for its second reading. it was passed today and the mayor has up to 30 days some along. this version will be what we are implementing if you are so inclined to take it with you, it starts to implement it. in addition, i have attached to new legislation that you should be aware of. the first is replacing the criminal penalties with administrating -- administrative penalties. i gave you the -- which gives you the number.
it is easier to get involved in the process. i am sure that you have any comment. it will take time to achieve an end of the entertainment use. >> if you're giving the planning commission the discretion to decide whether something is necessary or desirable, these are pretty loose terms. you can only affect the project if you can prove that there are exceptional -- which requires some mitigation. >> this is attached with the
final number as well. i want to update you on that we scheduled to work retreat and i will look out for a location in san francisco we are required to do 15 day notice as we will be outside of city hall. i think that that is the last days for -- if anyone has any suggestions for the location, i have some fires but it would be great if we could do this as
the few times to have been open, these have been very small and not very well attended. we have had no new instances. i was able to go to sacramento. i was able to talk to mr. zimmermann. i was able to talk to him about one of the claims i am hearing. we are doing hospitality security. the current standards is good. i was able to bring that issue
up. also, i was able to me -- meet with the investigator in setup dates and times for -- we can do permit checks, security checks. they have the resources and the ability to do that. that is exciting we are attending a meeting at the comptroller's office. what was determined is that the staff in that we will be
tracking all citations written. originally, we're going to the comptroller's office. an update on the trigger, i attended the planning commission hearing. the commission gave and rolling that they will have to close at their patio. there are sound problems in the area. they will have to close that particular area. they're6&y using a space that ty had in the back.
the plans are different. we have some different ways to organize the crowd. we tried one option this weekend and it did not go as well as we had hoped. it is great, everyone is sending e-mail and we can know if the staff will facilitate that kind of open dialogue. we're looking into the complaints. we have been by a few times. we will try to wrap this up and dow.
i can go over if you wish. >> we will open it up to commissioner questions. >> how are you tracking those applications? >> we created a database that we had and any citation was to be put into. we have expanded that to track but other -- coming in and so forth. we already had that established. >> what is your recourse if they go the limit? >> if they got one more per week, instead it actually says that we can actually surf. once we can go 30 days, i
believe this is 5%. >> there is a panel assessment and this is on the permit. >> an addition, hope of -- we're not a collection agency. while they may take a portion of what is perceived, this is not that large. subtracting will not be a problem just yet but obviously if we are successful in the coming budget year or any time soon in achieving more
reinforcements staff,, that is how we plan to do that. >> have you spoken to anyone in the comptroller's office about the revenue neutral status? >> i don't think that we have had that conversation. >> great. >> under the incident list, is ruby sky when they report -- one day apart? cantilever it was going on? >> this was a battery of icky chairman have been a hot dog and one have been a -- at another hot dog and it had very little to do with the club.
both had been there and then exited the club at that time. >> can you tell me the difference in severity between when you issue a notice of violation and when you see a citation? >> if we come across a thing you that has some kind of ongoing issue, we really look at the notice of violation as a written first time -- maybe you have to close the front door, your not controlling
the sound, the police will then issue them a written notice of violation which goes on record that you have been formally warned that you need to take care of the problem. the problems that then persist will then go to a written citation. the only time that we skip one or the other is that we don't go to the regional violation is that if the issue is severe enough war to warrant an immediate citation. we have seen violence happen right before our. it is. we can address this. >> thank you. >> appeal of the director's order --
is there any public comment on the report? item number four, off the appeal of the director's order revising this security plan for places entertainment permit 113590. >> this item was here based on an appeal of the director's order that was issued november 2nd revising the security plan and placing a condition on a venue called gravity. the operators have withdrawn their appeal as of this morning. so, i have
